Welcome to my website. It’s still in development so bear with me as I furnish it with words and images. I am a Somerset based mixed media artist with a drive to capture the movement, beauty and chaos of both the natural world and the imagination. I usually start with extensive mark making before I begin to see patterns or images emerging, it has taken years to deconstruct the search for perfection and allow each mark to express itself with courage and freedom, it’s an entirely intuitive way of art making that leads to a completely individual approach where colours, symbols and images can be accessed beyond the field of verbal language, that is a primary element that I love about abstraction.



My creative process is a response to how I view and make sense of the complexities of the world around me. I love the play of colours that sit beside each other in unexpected ways, I enjoy playing with scale and the theme of inside/outside and creating pattern and order from chaos. My images invite the viewer to take the opportunity of responding to it in their own individual way, to look into the kaleidoscope of nature and imagination and draw their own meaningful conclusions. More recently I have been exploring printing my images onto fabric and thinking about ways of wearing art in daily life.



My work is rooted in the growth and lived experiences I have gleaned along the way of my healing journey and also from a deep love of the earth, imagination and my dreams.
